Wednesday Chat: February 12

It's Thursday and since the Titanfall Beta process has started, we'd like to know what you think about Beta's in general.

Do you think Beta's are useful for developers in order to gauge how well the game and its servers work? Or do you think this is something more to Beta's, such as it being a great way to market a game and therefore gain the publisher a whole load of free marketing (providing the game is good of course).

Also what do you think of the recent trend of being buying games in order to gain early access, even though the game is yet to be finished. Does you feel benefit both gamers and developers since it gives everyone the chance to see the game evolve together?

What are your thoughts?

Let's Chat!

I like the idea of betas but i dislike it when people judge a full game based on the Beta because when it's in beta form it isn't a finished game.

Only Beta I have tried was the Uncharted 3 multiplayer one. Had to update my system and then download and install beta so after 3 or 4 hours waiting for all that to be done I kinda lost interest and only played one game.

Been in a few betas over the years, and played the finished game for most of them, and I think it's fine to judge the finished game from a beta, as the game is more or less finished by the time it gets to beta stage, it's just bug testing.

It is sort of all right to judge but it depends on what as the same sort of game mechanics will be in the beta as in the final just a bit more polished but then it depends on when the beta is and the final release date. For things like an MMO they can change quite a bit and have loads of different betas throughout whereas the likes of Titanfall and other shooters that have a beta a few weeks before release i reckon is more just for the servers and a glorified demo to build hype.

Hope we get a monster hunter 4 release date though if they are releasing the ultimate version in 2015 then I do not think we will see it till then.
